Thank you for your reply,
I found it to be most enlightening and took the time to read through your links and on DSLs.
As I studied language theory and had to come up with a toy one I kinda related to different posts I found online warning people against DSLs.
I have three follow up questions on that topic.

  • Beside the easily found example that I felt only scratched the surface, how spread is the use of DSLs?
  • Furthermore, when taking into account the difficulty of designing and maintaining a language (I found grammar and syntax to be complicated to do well, but it might just be me) why not use pure lua to script your application?
  • What are some good ressources on the most maintainable design patterns used when you need to come up with an architecture for supporting user written addons? (I read Module::Pluggable documentation's but I could not think of a way to make it able to directly use lua scripts without having to wrap each of them in a perl module

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
